My first go at a 2v2 map when the latest became available, called Burning Plain:
I want to first say I love the general look of all your maps I've seen so far. However the ore amounts on them are insanely high.
~540k for burning fields as a 2v2. That's a little of 100k per player. With the huge ore field in the center removed there is still about 300k on the map.
Compare that to Jungle Law(270k), river aurora(240k), river borealis(220k) and those are 3v3 maps!
tyrants and climax have 140k total ore, which is on the lower side, Operation goldmine has 170 and always produced fun games when SoS would stream it, or doublestep which has 200k. Tandem, Vihaan lunta, and x-lake all have more than 200k
and still make great games. The 2v2 map with the highest ore total that I would still consider to be competitive is minor pressure at 340k and I don't think I've seen that map go more than 15 minutes. So my point is I think big eco maps can work but you're even bigger than big eco maps
Slight aside from the topic at hand but same thing applies to 1v1. Right now in RAGL Ysmir and Dual Cold Front are probably the biggest eco maps at around 100k. Another Tomorrow has 1.5 times that at 250k but again I love the way Another Tomorrow looks!
I'd like to see you make a map with a bit less ore and see how it turns out.
